Pam Voulalas '24 - From Neuropharmacologist to Composer

Congratulations to Pam Voulalas '24 on her profile in UMBC Stories! You can read about her inspiring journey from molecular neuropharmacologist to a B.A. in Music Composition at UMBC here!

As a high school student, Pam Voulalas ’24 was an aspiring clarinetist, determined to major in music and secure a position in a major symphony orchestra. But, on learning how infrequently symphony positions become available, she put down her clarinet. For 37 years.

Instead, she embarked on a career in the sciences, earning a Ph.D. and joining the faculty at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy. Now, decades later, she returned to school, and graduated last week with a B.A. in music from UMBC.
